A Christmas Vacation In Dubai With Family
Last year, during my son’s Christmas vacation, we decided to take a trip to Dubai. Burj Khalifa was on top of my son’s travel list and we thought this was a good time to make it happen for real considering probably end of December is the weightier time to visit Dubai for its weather conditions.
I did all my research to icon out what word-for-word places do we want to imbricate but then decided to go through some travel teachers to easy out the booking process as well as planning out the itinerary in detail. I tried multiple ones but Travel Triangle worked out the weightier for us. They unfluctuating us to multiple teachers who provided variegated quotes and they moreover followed up to ensure the teachers responded on time. We finalized our tour package with SVS travels from Pune of all the options considering they were really quick in responding to our queries/requests and they finalized the itinerary really well keeping our upkeep and our nomination of places in mind really well. Only thing that they could have washed-up largest is, start processing the visa a little early considering we had to wait till the last day to be unpreventable that we will be traveling. Except for this, withal with quick response they moreover ensured to typesetting as in a good hotel that was well located in terms of serviceability to various Indian restaurants, departmental stores etc.
Now, getting to the vacation mood, unelevated is how our 5 days went:
Summary of our Family Trip To Dubai Itinerary

Day 2 : Abu Dhabi Grand Mosque and Ferrari World.
Day 3 : Miracle garden followed by Desert Safari.
Day 4 : Dubai Municipality Tour, Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa.
Day 5 : Shopping at Meena bazaar. Flight when to Bangalore.
Day 1: Dubai – Gold Rush And A Fantastic Night Trip Experience
We reached Dubai virtually 1 PM. The cab suburbanite was waiting at the airport lobby to pick us up and helped us check-in to Hotel Panorama Grand by 2 PM. While the hotel was good and we overall had a unconfined stay, the receptionist wasn’t very professional and customer-centric in her work which disappointed us. Since we had half-day to ourselves, we decided to explore the popular Gold & Spice souk of Dubai.
Dubai Gold & Spice souq is a must visit. The number of gold shops, hodgepodge of the ornaments in Gold souq were overwhelming to me. And the spice souq was a real treat to eyes, nose and tongue ;). We ended up ownership quite a few spices and dry fruits from this place.
We had the booking with Marina dhow trip for evening dinner. Suburbanite picked us up virtually 7:30 PM. The trip wits was quite decent – Nice view of Dubai with night lights from water, Amazing flit performance, Really pleasant weather and good food. With some really well spent moments, we reached the hotel when mid-night for a sound sleep.
Special memory of the day: The cab suburbanite who picked us from airport was a really nice person, spoke to us throughout the journey and most importantly without knowing that we are from Bangalore, he asked us what was the original name of Bangalore. We kept giving multiple names like Bengaluru but finally he gave out the real name “Benda kaaluru” which was truly uncanny to hear from a non-Indian in Dubai and he just learnt this from his friend. Wow… Hats off to him.
Day 2: Abu Dhabi – The Weightier Of Spirituality & Adventure
This day was a lot of travel as we had to travel to Abu Dhabi to visit the Grand Mosque and get the taste of fun-scary rides from Ferrari world. I specifically segregate this place considering both my husband and son are crazy well-nigh cars.
Cab suburbanite picked us up virtually 8 am. We reached Abu Dhabi virtually 10:30 or 11 am. The first stop was at Grand Mosque. They are very strict with the dress lawmaking and hence you need to be covered top to bottom. They provide Abaya for self-ruling for those who’s dress lawmaking wouldn’t meet their culture. So I had to pick one as well. Then they indulge you to go through the whole mosque. This mosque has a gorgeous tracery and is so pleasing to the eyes. It has been moreover maintained so well. Plane the photographs cannot justify its eyeful and finally the chandelier was so elegant and magnificent.
Around lunch time, we reached Ferrari World to make it a fun-filled day. This place drives the people who are crazy well-nigh cars, plane increasingly crazy. It is filled with crazy rides and for those who love dry rides, you can be on them whole day and still not be satisfied. We weren’t up for those rides so didn’t try too many. Apart from the rides, they had some wonderful shows as well which makes you lose track of the time. They had moreover set up some good venturesome games for kids which my son enjoyed the most. The flit show on the ice ring is a must watch.
Special memory of the day: Honestly, I wasn’t very keen well-nigh Grand Mosque as I am not a big fan of history and architecture. But since we were in Abu Dhabi for Ferrari world, we decided to visit this place. I’m so glad we made that visualization considering this place was totally worth visiting.
Day 3: Dubai – The Spectacular Miracle Garden And An Plane Largest Desert Safari
Our next journey was to some special places that are nonflexible to find elsewhere in the world. Morning we went to Miracle garden and in the afternoon, we went for the desert safari with dune bash.
Miracle garden is a huge garden of pretty flowers with various themes/characters flowing throughout the garden. It is a very colorful place and such a pleasant thing to your eyes. For people who love taking photos, you can spend hours together clicking some weightier photographs. I love the way it has been thought through and maintained. It’s uncanny to see such a garden built in a desert like Dubai.
Post lunch, we were booked for a desert safari. One cannot imagine skipping a desert safari without stuff in Dubai. It was a really long momentum to get to this desert. There are quite a few things you can do here – Try the quad bikes on silky soft sand, Go on a crazy dune bash, enjoy some cultural activities in the middle of the desert (belly dance, tanoura Dance, fire show, henna painting, camel ride etc.). Unfortunately, we reached the desert late considering of which we couldn’t enjoy the golden times on those wide-stretch velvety sand.
Day 4: The Many Wonders Of Dubai
This day was all well-nigh the grand Dubai city. Morning, we visiting multiple key buildings of Jumeirah. We spent whole of our afternoon in the Dubai mall and ended the day with the trappy views from the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa.
Our morning started with visit to some popular mosques in Jumeirah, followed by Jumeirah beach, view of 7-star Burj al arab hotel view from the waterfront and Hotel palm Atlantis. All of these were trappy places but the only regret was that we didn’t have unbearable time to spend enjoying the pristine water and pleasing eyeful of the Jumeirah beach.
After this, Dubai mall was in our next turn. This is a really huge mall. It is easy for anyone to get lost here and Dubai mall App will be your savior to find the way to place you need to reach. Since I knew well-nigh this, we had once installed this app on our mobile. This mall doesn’t just have the all the popular brands of the world for shopping but they moreover have plenty of eatery places and a host of activities to do. We went to Dubai Aquarium and Underwater zoo both of which were a decent visit. Since the mall is huge, it is a lot of walking that you need to be prepared for and time flies mostly just in your walks.
Last but not least was our entry to the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa. It is the world’s tallest towers and the view from the top is mesmerizing. The 125th floor is moreover unshut to public and is a little bit unshut space where you can finger the tomfool walkover and finger the height. Only sad thing well-nigh this place was that most of the time here goes in waiting to get to the top or waiting to get lanugo considering of the long queues.
Day 5: A Relaxing Day And Some Last Minute Shopping!
On the last day, we didn’t do much as the last 4 days were a lot of continuous worriedness for us. We mostly relaxed and took a quick walking tour to Meena supermarket doing some last minute shopping. We had booked for evening flight so had unbearable time to just relax and do some shopping worth it like the Date-Almond chocolates, cosmetics etc.
Important Information To Remember When Taking A Family Trip To Dubai
Food: I didn’t mention well-nigh supplies anywhere. The place where our hotel was situated had plenty of options virtually at walkable distance. We are vegetarians but we didn’t squatter any problem finding good supplies options both virtually the hotel and all the places we visited.
Weather: I chose to visit Dubai in December considering I unmistakably wanted to prevent the hot summers of Dubai. The weather was amazingly pleasant and gave the same feeling as that of Bangalore weather. We moreover had to use jackets for the first couple of days due to the unprepossessed breeze.
Mobile Connectivity: To travel places, you might end-up heavily depending on apps (cab booking, whatsapp etc.). Ownership the sim vellum in Dubai is expensive and data is plane increasingly expensive. We missed it but recommend people to buy the sim from the airport itself where I have heard the sim could be bought for self-ruling by the visitors. While data pack is still an issue, most places in Dubai has self-ruling WiFi that turns out to be the savior
